350 Australia’s people-powered investigations

At 350 Australia we know that the only way we’ll see meaningful action on climate change is if we can counter the power of big fossil fuel companies with the power of people taking collective action.

Through our people-powered investigations, we bring the dodgy dealings of the fossil fuel lobby into the light, so that together we can take back our democracy from the polluters.

Latest investigations

Integrity concerns with Empire Energy grants

In late 2020, Energy Minister Angus Taylor visited Empire Energy’s fracking site in the Northern Territory. He wasn’t the Minister responsible for the issue so we decided to take a closer look at his connections to the company. 

Exposing the Covid-19 commission

In March 2020, the Government appointed a so-called ‘Covid Commission’ that was stacked with fossil fuel company executives and gas “kingmakers” whose vision for Australia was for more pipelines and fracking wells.

The Kurri Kurri Gas Fired Power Station

We set about investigating who was behind these proposals and set to benefit from the Government building a new gas-fired power station in the Hunter.

Fossil fuel watch

From the first days of the global COVID-19 pandemic, it became clear that the fossil fuel lobby was running a concerted campaign to exploit the global health crisis to further its agenda.
